Live Performance From Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros And We Talk With Leader Alex Ebert

Right from the beginning Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeroes have been an amazing live band. They brought people together even before their first album Up from Below which contained the crowd pleasing love song "Home." Today we will hear live performances from The XPoNential Music Festival
Read our review, listen to the new album and get ready to see the band this Friday night at #xpnfest
The powerful roots-stompin', folk-anthem-beltin' dectet we all know and love is making a return to the XPoNential Music Festival. We can't wait to hear fun singalongs like "Home," and their sophomore album "Here" totes hits like "Man On Fire" not worth missing live. Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros last played the XPoNential Music Festival in 2010. The boys will release a new self-titled album on July 23!

When you first listen to Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros it's difficult not to be captivated by their revivalist style of jangly folk-rock. It's somewhat striking, an open departure in the current landscape of indie rock. And the band has created a big buzz locally in Los Angeles due in large part to their lively stage shows and their debut album Up From Below.
